CAIR strikes again

“The terrorist-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is demanding that public schools in overwhelmingly Christian Tennessee be taught that the Islamic prophet Muhammad is the one and only true messenger of God.” Matthew Vadum

“Islam is not a religion of peace, it’s a political theory of conquest that seeks domination by any means it can.” Ayaan Hirsi Ali

“81 percent of Tennessee residents are Christian, and only 1 percent are Muslims. The national average is 70.6 percent Christian and 0.9 percent Muslim.” Vadum

CAIR DEMANDS MUSLIM INDOCTRINATION OF 12-YEAR-OLDS

The story of a parent uprising in Tennessee.

The terrorist-linked Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) is demanding that public school students in overwhelmingly Christian Tennessee be taught that the Islamic prophet Muhammad is the one and only true messenger of God.

No one seems to know why the Volunteer State has become a target of Religion of Peace activists. A 2014 Pew Research Center study found 81 percent of Tennessee residents are Christian, and only 1 percent are Muslims. The national average is 70.6 percent Christian and 0.9 percent Muslim.

But the self-styled Muslim civil rights group is warning Tennesseans about a proposed law that would forbid public schools in the state from teaching the principles of The Religion of Peace and every other religion until the 10th grade. Of course, whether Islam is even a religion per se has become a topic of lively debate. As outspoken ex-Muslim Ayaan Hirsi Ali says “Islam is not a religion of peace, it’s a political theory of conquest that seeks domination by any means it can.”

As Hirsi Ali opines and FrontPage readers are painfully aware, Islam is not content to be treated equally alongside other world religions. It insists on supremacy. As the San Ramon Valley Herald reported, CAIR founder Omar Ahmad told California Muslims exactly that in 1998, years before Americans were paying attention to Islam.

“If you choose to live here … you have a responsibility to deliver the message of Islam,” he said. The report paraphrased Ahmad adding, “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on earth.” Ahmad also said, “Everything we need to know is in the Koran. We don’t need to look somewhere else.” Continue reading

Me Like Too!

“Thomas Sowell’s Wealth, Poverty and Politics: An International Perspective is a true gem in terms of exposing the demagoguery and sheer ignorance of politicians and intellectuals in their claims about wealth and poverty.” Walter E. Williams

“How many times have we been told that the rich are prospering at the expense of the poor? Sowell points out that most households in the bottom 20 percent in income have no one working. How can someone who isn’t producing anything have something taken from him?” Ibid

Dr. Thomas Sowell, my colleague and friend, told me several years ago that he wasn’t going to write any more books, but that was two books ago, and now he has just published his 45th. The man writes with both hands, as can be seen from his website (http://tsowell.com), which lists his 45 books, 19 journal articles, 71 essays in periodicals and books, 34 book reviews, and occasional columns written in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, The Washington Post, the Los Angeles Times, The Washington Star, Newsweek, The Times (Britain) et al. Plus, he writes a semiweekly column for Creators Syndicate. Continue reading

The West Commits Suicide

“Previous civilizations have been overthrown from without by the incursion of barbarian hordes. Christendom has dreamed up its own dissolution in the minds of its own intellectual elite.” Malcolm Muggeridge, The End of Christendom, p. 17

“Our barbarians are home products, indoctrinated at the public expense, urged on by the media systematically stage by stage, dismantling Christendom, depreciating and deprecating all its values.” Ibid

“Europe is dying because it has become morally incompetent.” Bret Stephens

“What Europeans no longer believe in are the things from which their beliefs spring: Judaism and Christianity.” Ibid

“What is Europe? It is Greece not Persia; Rome not Carthage; Christendom not the caliphate.” Ibid

In Defense of Christendom

Having ignored its inheritance, Europe wonders why its house is falling apart.

Bret Stephens, The Wall Street Journal, October 20, 2015, p. A 11 

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan  meet in Istanbul, Oct. 18.

The death of Europe is in sight. Still hazy and not yet inevitable, but nevertheless visible and drawing nearer—like a distant planet in the lens of an approaching satellite. Europe is reaching its end not because of its sclerotic economy, or stagnant demography, or the dysfunctions of the superstate. Nor is the real cause the massive influx of Middle Eastern and African migrants. Those desperate people are just the latest stiff breeze against the timber of a desiccated civilization.
